CutPasses

Cutting plane passes
 Type: int
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -1
 Maximum value: MAXINT

A non-negative value indicates the maximum number of cutting plane passes performed during root cut generation. The default value chooses the number of cut passes automatically.

You should experiment with different values of this parameter if you notice the MIP solver spending significant time on root cut passes that have little impact on the objective bound.

One important note about integer-valued parameters: while the maximum value that can be stored in a signed integer is <span>$</span>2^{31}-1<span>$</span>, we use a MAXINT value of 2,000,000,000. Attempting to set an integer parameter to a value larger than this maximum will produce an error.

Note: Only affects mixed integer programming (MIP) models
